Although his numerous books deal with a wide range of topics, David Dominé often looks to his beloved Old Louisville neighborhood for inspiration in his writing. Please join us for a reading and signing of his just-released "unconventional" memoir Voodoo Days at La Casa Fabulosa, which offers a humorous account of the year he spent restoring a large Victorian house that came with a ghostly past. A skeptic by nature, he looked for rational explanations when unexplained noises and smells started keeping him awake at night; but as he learned more about his new home, he discovered that the real-life characters around him were much more interesting than those in the otherworld.
David's current projects include a true-crime book about the bizarre 2009 murder of Jamie Carroll and the subsequent trials of alleged killers Jeffery Mundt and Joseph Banis. He teaches foreign languages and translation at Bellarmine University, and he holds an MFA in creative writing from Spalding University.
When food writer David Domin moves into a six-bedroom, three-story Victorian house, he doesn't realize he will be living in an enchanted neighborhood, one known for its gargoyles and gas lamps, hidden courtyards, towers, turrets, and gingerbread trim.
